Atari St2 by svenart Atari St2 by svenart
My design for a new (fictional) Atari St model (kind of a new generation homecomputer, all in one). Modeled & rendered with Lightwave10. Hope you like it, thanks for viewing :)

You can see a closeup of the scene here:


Thanks very much for the daily deviation :)

Hallo Sven,
echt geile Vision die du hier zeigst.
schon mal daran gedacht deine 3D-StudioMax Grafik in einen 3D-Drucker zu stecken und daraus Realität werden zu lassen?
es ist zwar Fraglich ob Atari da mit machen würde aber Abnehmer finden sich mit Sicherheit viele und ich währe einer davon.
Da würde z.b. die Hardware meines 11" Schenker XMG A120 gut rein passen. ;)

abundzu denk ich schonmal daran bzw an ähnliche Scenarios. Allerdings, wenn man sich anschaut wie die ganzen Neuauflagen vom Amiga sich entwickelt haben, können einem da schon Zweifel kommen ob das wirklich gut ankommen würde. Ausserdem wurde die Marke Atari auch grad wieder verkauft soweit ich weiß. Ich hab leider wenig Hoffnung das sich das noch irgendwas entwickelt.

Am ehesten realistisch wäre es meiner Meinung nach noch, die Marke Atari zu benutzen um eine Reihe Gamer Keyboards zu entwickeln... Ähnlich wie Razor.  So eines würde ich mir dann auch holen.

btw. In den meisten 3d Druckern kann man nur sehr kleine Objekte ausdrucken.

I remember the Atari vs Amiga battle :). I had an Amiga, but this is really cool.

I had an ATARI 520 ST when I was a kid, and the games I played on it defined my existence. Thanks for bringing an emotional tear to my mind :)

I guess it should be possible to edit the 3d file a bit to get something printable with a 3d printer don't you think Sven ? If so i would like to buy such a case. Bravo for this work

This is amazing , great render and cool concept. wish it was real!
Evesy Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2012
This is amazing great render and such a cool concept. I only wish it was for real, it reminds me of the falcon 040, a version of the Atari falcon that never got made sadly.
LordRahl8 Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2012  Student Digital Artist
That is grate looking. To bad import Atari stopped making hardware long ago.
superstrudel Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2012
GREAT! the best computer with the best design. So sad that Lightwave is a 3d software, I was thinking that your atari was real!
Very good job, thanks
NobodyJF Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2012
It's not really the same if the specs are exactly like an X86 PC.

I thought this was something new at first. XD
dbug Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2011
Very nice looking, but imo you should add the two missing keys, with the standard pc setup it's hard to play Dungeon Master :) So instead you should move "Insert" on the left of the "UP" key, move "Home" to the right of the "UP" key, and replace the existing "Insert" and "Home" with "Help" and "Undo". Then you get the best of the PC and Atari keyboard layouts :)

The other thing is that the general case shape looks like a mix between the Amiga and the Atari, if the back area was not that low compared to the original Atari then it could contain the PSU block, else like on the Amiga you need an external PSU. And the ventilation grid was not shaped like ///////// it was rectangular like |///////|.

And and yeah, the biggest killer is the Atari logo, please replace the horrible Infograme reinvention of the logo that you used on the case by the one shown on the white ad text :)

(and yes I know it's nitpicking)
svenart Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
thank you for your comment :)

I was also a big fan of dungeonmaster, but I dont think I would play this these days anymore. I had no Idea that the Atari Logo has changed. It looks pretty much the same for me but thanks for let me know :)
dbug Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2011

Well, the usual question is to know what one would do with such a machine. Sure it's a good normal PC/Mac/Linux machine hardware in a retro case, but then if you wanted to spend money for such a case it's probably because you would be a retro fan, probably wanting to play old stuff on an emulator. In such a case it makes sense to have a keyboard layout that makes it possible to play old games in the most optimal way (which by the way means it would be a good idea to have joystick connectors too!)

About the logo, the new one looks like a "road" seen with a perspective: The three bars are thin at the top and enlarge toward the bottom, it's what is called the "Infograme redesign" of the Atari logo: [link]

The old logo had a perfectly rectangular middle bar, and the two side bars are slimmer at the top: [link] it was supposed to be a stylized representation of the mount Fuji volcano (with possibly the central bar being the lava conduct?).

Your ability to capture realism is amazing!! Great work!

The typo kills it for me. It's Blu-ray not Blueray. I know it's nit-picky, but I work in home theater so it stands out to me.

looks very similar to the razer black widow ultimate :D
what's that stuff at the top above the keyboard?
theubbergeek2 Featured By Owner May 18, 2011
wow, its realistic quite...

You should show that at Alternate, maybe someone make a computer alternate history? they may love this...
